Removal of nickel as toxic heavy metal using Entromorpha as green alga

Author(s): Mahmood Niad, Saeid Zaree

The biosorption of Ni(II) from aqueous solution by using Enteromorpha as cheap green alga were considered. The effects of pH, temperature, contact time, initial concentration of Ni(II) and biosorbent dose were studied. This study shows that Enteromorpha can be used for removal of Ni(II) from aqueous solution wastewater. A second-order equation designated for kinetic of the biosorption and Langmuir isothermmodel are fitted for equilibrium of the adsorption data.
